As part of the Physical Education curriculum every child in the school takes part in activities each week. Many different games are played, physical exercises are practiced and all the children are given the opportunity to learn the skills necessary to partake in a myriad of sports.
Gaelic games are very popular in the school. The school enters teams in the hurling, football and camogie leagues organised by Cumann na mBunscol. The camogie team aslo won their final in Croke Park in June 2016 and we are extremely proud of their achievements.
A trainer from Round Towers GAA Club comes to the school and gives some of the classes extra training in hurling, football and camogie during the year.
The girls football team tasted success in Croke Park for the first time in the schools history in 2007. They were unlucky to lose out in the final the following year. In 2012 we had success on the camogie pitch. Our victorious team brought the ‘Sciath Nua’ back to Gaelscoil na Camóige. In 2015, as part of the Cumann na mBunscoil competition, the girls football team won the Corn Tadhg Ó Cionnaith in Croke Park. A fantastic success for our school. The entire school supports the teams on their achievements and we all thoroughly enjoy these special occasions.
Two classes attend swimming lessons in the Clondalkin Sports and Leisure Centre each term. Every child in classes 1 to 6 gets the opportunity to attend for one term per year. This is an important part of our P.E curriculum in the school.
The school athletics team takes part in the South Dublin County Council Cross Country Series as well as the sprints, hurdles and field events in Santry.
The teachers in the school are very generous in giving their spare time to extra curricular activities for which we are very grateful.
